You might wonder where authors get inspiration for their books. That's a great question. I can't answer for all authors, but what works for me is to expose myself to as many experiences as possible.
When I'm walking in the woods, I get ideas for a scene. At a birthday party, I might observe the interaction between family members. Is there tension between a child and his parents or between two siblings? Why?
The most exciting news this year is I scored a Kobo Promotion that is due to begin running on August 8th, 2022 for a week. Woohoo! This is a 40% off sale of the book on Kobo only. The book will be listed at its regular price of $4.99 and then will be discounted 40% on checkout. This promotion is what gets wide authors excited.
What is a Wide Author?
There are two types of authors. An author can be wide or exclusive to Amazon. An Amazon exclusive author has locked in all their sales to Amazon. They list their books on Kindle Unlimited (KDP) and are paid for page reads and readers can also buy their books. Wide authors are authors who have chosen not to be locked in to receiving ALL their revenue and sales from one book distributor, Amazon. They have chosen to sell their books on Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Direct to readers, Apple Books, Google Books and a myriad other possible distribution outlets.
Which is the best choice, wide or exclusive?
In May, I ran my first sales promo with Book Funnel. See my article Book Funnel Sales Promos for more details about the promos. This article is to let you know what my results were and what you might expect if you decide to join a promo.
There were 88 books in the promotion, which is a lot, though some writers had more than one book displayed. Because my one single book was competing against so many other books marketed in this promotion . . .
My second book funnel sales promotion, Summer Reading Challenge, started June 5th, 2022. Check out the books offered in this promotion. Hey you might find something you like.
